Students cooking in the food labs at Brescia

Support Academic Excellence

Brescia has set a course for the next 100 years with the opening of a state-of-the-art Academic Pavilion in 2019. The light-filled pavilion captures the best in educational design and technology, fostering collaboration and connection among students and faculty. It houses cutting-edge Food and Nutrition laboratories and future-ready classroom spaces.

A gift to support academic excellence will:

  • Provide an enriched student experience for women studying Foods & Nutrition, Humanities, Leadership and Social Sciences
  • Enhance experiential learning opportunities inside the classroom
  • Support the current and future needs of our growing Foods & Nutrition program
  • Foster cutting-edge research in areas such as Clinical Nutrition, Food Safety, Food Technology and Food Literacy
  • Develop local and national industry partnerships

"Almost 100 years ago, the Ursuline Sisters founded Brescia to be a student-centred and empowering educational experience for women and we are confident our new Academic Pavilion will inspire students and researchers for decades to come."
- Dr. Susan Mumm, Principal, Brescia University College
